I can’t believe they’ve done this to ‘Ek Do Teen’. It’s crass beyond imagination. Saroj (Khan) ji and I are definitely taking action, says N Chandra.

Choreographer turned director, Ahmed Khan, who is debuting with Baaghi 2, has recreated two classic songs from the past for his first film. He first recreated Mundiyan, the worldwide hit Punjabi song, and a few days ago, he remixed the cult classic song, Ek Do Teen from the movie, Tezaab. The new Ek Do Teen has not been appreciated much and now, N Chandra, the director of Tezaab, has raised his voice against the song. The veteran filmmaker along with Saroj Khan is shocked and upset and wants to take a legal action against Baaghi 2 makers for ruining the classic.
It was the original choreographer, Saroj Khan, who gave Chandra the startling news. Says Chandra, “I met Saroj ji at Sridevi’s prayer meeting. It was there that Sarojji marched up to me to tell me about it. Can you imagine how much it had upset her that she needed to vent at such a solemn occasion? Anyway, she came to me and said, ‘Have you seen what they’re doing to our ‘Ek Do Teen’ number?’ I had no clue. Saroj ji told me that the makers of Baaghi 2 were doing a new version of ‘Ek Do Teen’. She said she will take legal action against it.”
Now that Ek Do Teen as performed by Jacqueline Fernandez is out, N Chandra is in a state of shock. Says the irate filmmaker, “I can’t believe they’ve done this to Ek Do Teen. It’s crass beyond imagination. And Jacqueline Fernandez doing Madhuri Dixit’s number? Give me a break! It’s like turning the Central Park into a botanical garden. Madhuri danced with such grace and innocence. This number is like a sex act. Saroj ji and I are definitely taking action.”
